After graduating from university, on my travels, I fell in love with Cyprus, this beautiful island of love, in the middle of the Mediterranean. Everything about it appealed to me. It was like going back in time. Simple village ways and simple village life. Basic living. Basic foods. An ease to life itself. In some mountain villages the people still traveled the narrow winding paths by donkey! The sea and the beaches were incredible.
I have always been a nature girl. I fell in love with Aphrodite and her story. Here, I made my own story. Art has been my passion ever since I can remember and I felt so much connection and inspiration here.
My art work had been mostly large scale mural work in the night clubs of holiday resorts, some private nurseries and offices alongside a couple of exhibitions I still had running in the U.K.. I took a little time out to raise my young family, grow trees, flowers and vegetables and run some art workshops and lessons. I still worked on some smaller projects, portraits and the odd commission and large scale mural. I was invited to create some paintings for a local exhibition by the municipality, through one of my students back in 2007 and I have been painting professionally again ever since!
I have exhibited my art work internationally. It has been shown all over Cyprus, The United Kingdom and Turks and Caicos in the Caribbean. My paintings printed on cushions have even decorated the club house of Sir Richard Branson himself over in the Virgin Islands and it has also been featured on a T.V show in the states and participated in art shows there.
Paintings are in private collections all over the world.
